Spring is just around the corner. And what I am looking forward to the most is trading in my heavy winter jumpers to my stylish trench coats and light kimonos (because KIMONO = LOVE!) I see breezy, mostly sunny skies in our forecast. So it clearly calls for a beauty overhaul. This is the opportune time to swap not only your style catalogue but also your make up wardrobe. And the mission:
beauty that is simple, effortless and practical but with a pinch of fun!
Pretty things that you need to add to your beauty boudoir to kick yourself into Spring high gear are…
THE ESTEE EDIT Beam Team Hydrate and Glow
This is a light-as-a-feather moisturizer that provides a subtle glow on the skin. The words “IN LOVE” won’t even cut it. Whenever I am on my errand days, this my go to! It just gives my skin a healthy glow. It is infused with Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate the skin and it not formulated with parabens. It is perfectly paired with a mini touch-on illuminator as well good for the “glow on the go” days and it comes in two colours to HUG all skin types! (Sephora, $49CAD)
LANCOME Juicy Shaker
A lip oil that leaves lips hydrated with a subtle tint. Where do I even begin? What I love most about this product is its simplicity and no mess applicator cushion. Comfortable to wear, it envelops the lips with nourishing oils and colour. Non-sticky and it comes in different scents and pigments to cater to your spirit and personality. *wink* (Lancome.com, $28)
MARC JACOBS BEAUTY Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon
Matte gel eyeliner that provides an intense colour pay-off. One word that I can use to describe this product is OBSESSION. It is pure obsession! If only money could grow on trees, my Sephora haul would include ALL of the colours from this collection. They are soft and effortless to apply. Versatile and playful, one can create so many looks and eye makeup styles. And the wear makes it worth the $$$! (Sephora, $31)
Have lovely days ahead my sweets!
